Yes, she does. I was just saying that the writing of her book about the Queen Mother was not very nice.

To be honest, I think it was the strong character of the Queen Mum that got George VI through a lot of what he had to deal with.

I've read one book by "Lady" Colin Campbell and it was so full of "those close to the family" and "sources high up in the palace" that it turned me off her permanently. This woman was actually married to Lord Colin Ivar Campbell from 1974-1975 which, to me, had the duration and shelf life of edible underwear and has been trading on that name ever since *alluding* to *know* things. The Daily Fail does better than she does in my book.

Totally, totally agree Osipi. I think she was his backbone. Whether people like her or not, (meaning extravagance etc) the QM was a great consort for the King and his people. JMO

she is still entitled to call herself Lady Colin.. and she problaby has got society connextions, even if she's inclined to go in for very wildly inaccurate writing.

I've found Lady Colin Campbell's writings on the BRF to be very sensational ... too sensational as a matter of fact and very distasteful.

King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited Scotland in September 1948 and opened the Braemar Highland Games. It was can important occasion because it marked the centenary of the Royal Family's patronage of the games.

George VI is my favorite Royal, so Iím sad to see his thread so dead.

An hour long doc called Being the Queen aired on Nat Geo network last night. I havenít watched it yet, but I saw the very last bit. In it, Margaret Rhodes comments that HM, even now, looks to her beloved papa, as if to say ďsee papa? Iíve been Queen for so long, and Iíve tried to do it the way you taught meĒ. That made me so emotional..I really adore their bond, and it moves me how much HM loves her father...

Thank you Betsypaige for pushing George VI's thread up. I too, admire George VI not just overcoming his stammer, especially making speeches during WWII, but also a doting father. I am sure that George VI would be very proud of his daughter for her lifelong services and duties to Britain and the Commonwealth.

Oh, glad to do it, AC ! I love his basic decency and humanity, and bravery - when we talk about Royals doing their duty, heís right at the top of the list for if anyone didnít want to be King, it was Bertie. Heíd be so proud of his daughter, and not surprised at all.
